Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My new Lenovo G550 laptop (bought 3 days ago) won't connect to a wireless network anywhere. At home I have a desktop and another laptop that are connected and I don't have any trouble with them until I try to connect with my new laptop. I installed internet 8 when I opened the laptop. What can I do?

The wireless card may be swithed offGo to control panel and select "wireless connection" windows will detect the wireless card and tell you if it's swithed off.

Lenovo g550 orange flash 3 times


3 orange flashes means flat battery. If you have a faulty charger or charger socket on the laptop then the battery wont charge or power up with just the charger connected.

Hi!
There are many possible reasons why you can't connect to the internet and answering these questions might help narrow down your problem.
  1. Are you trying to connect to the internet wirelessly or with a wire?
  2. If you are connecting wirelessly, are you connected to any wireless network or did you enter the encryption key correctly?
  3. If you can't detect any wireless network then check if the wireless function of your laptop is enabled or not. That can be found as a slide switch at the side of your g550.
  4. What operating system are you using? Windows Vista, XP?
I hope you will find this helpful.
Thanks!

Hi i cant connect using wireless on my lenovo.


Welcome to fix ya

If you are having problems connecting wirelessly using your lenovo G550 here are steps that you could try

1. Press FN+F5 ( this turns the wireless adapter on/off)

2. Make sure that the wireless switch is toggled on. The wireless switch is located on the front of the laptop.

3. Make sure that the drivers for your wireless adapter is properly installed. To do this click on start then type device manager. click on device manager. click on the arrow next to network adapters. Make sure that the wireless adapter does not have a yellow exclamation point next to it. Also if you dont see your wireless adapter here check for a yellow question marrk in other device. If you dont have the driver you can download it here. www.consumersupport.lenovo.com

Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

Hi durgaaprosad,

Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following steps:

1. You can download the wireless and lan driver from here:

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=600154

2. go to Networking: Wireless LAN section and make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers that matches your Windows operating system.

3. After downloading the wireless driver driver install it and then restart your computer.

4. You can use wireless connection in absence of LAN connection.

Hope it helps.
